Hawai'i Community College will host 'Girls Who Code' computer science workshops starting January 27
Hawai'i Community College will host a series of free computer science workshops designed for girls in grades 6 through 12. The workshops are being led by Carrie Butler, an instructor in Hawai'i CC's Information Technology program, and are affiliated with the national nonprofit organization "Girls Who Code."
"Many IT jobs are currently in demand and are projected to be in the future," said Butler. "There is a much higher percentage of males working in computer and technology-related jobs than females. We are seeking to address this gap by getting girls interested in coding and other areas of IT in a safe, supportive, and fun environment."
Girls Who Code starts January 27. The group will meet Mondays, 4-5 p.m. at the UH Hilo campus, Building 346, Room 136 on January 27, February 10, February 24, March 2, March 23, March 30, April 6, April 13, April 20, and April 27.
